On Air with Ryan Seacrest is an American syndicated radio program hosted by Ryan Seacrest. As of 2017, the daily morning radio show airs on Los Angeles top 40 station KIIS-FM; it was launched at the same time as the television show with the same name, although Seacrest had hosted a similar show in afternoon drive on sister station KYSR from 1995 until 2003. The TV series ran for several months in 2004, but nationwide syndication of the radio program would not start until 2008, where a majority of its affiliates air it in the middays or afternoons.
The radio show is broadcast from the KIIS-FM studios in Burbank, California. On Air with Ryan Seacrest is also syndicated through Premiere Networks on over 130 radio stations nationwide and in Canada. Although Seacrest began working in New York on May 1, 2017, as co-host of the Live with Kelly & Ryan on ABC, the KIIS-FM radio program will continue to air live from 6am to 10am Pacific Time, with Seacrest using a Manhattan studio.
The radio program, which initially featured a former local news correspondent by the name of Ellen K., includes many popular segments such as Manny Streetz, Ginger Chan with Traffic, and the ever popular '60 Seconds of Sleaze' is the entertainment news segment provided by Ellen K. This segment was actually originated by Seacrest's predecessor on KIIS-FM, Rick Dees, in a segment called "Dees Sleaze." One of the most popular segments is the fictional 'Ryan's Roses': where "listeners" call in with the suspicion that their significant other is cheating. An 'On Air' staff member then calls the accused cheater imitating a florist who wishes to offer them a dozen free roses to be sent to anybody of their choosing. Often the accused cheater will send the flowers to the "wrong person," which often results in the "truth" pouring out and an argument between the couple, moderated by Seacrest. This segment is based on the common radio skit War of the Roses, which has been used on hundreds of radio shows around the country since the mid-1990s.
Following departure from the show, Ellen was replaced by former KIIS-FM midday jock Sisanie (who was also the substitute host for her on occasional days). It was officially announced on December 4, 2015, during the KIIS Jingle Ball 2015.
On May 1, 2017, Seacrest was named the new co-host of the syndicated television talk show Live with Kelly; to accommodate Seacrest's move, iHeartMedia will construct a new studio within the facilities of WABC-TV in New York City (where Live originates).
